The most recent mention of the Dixie in Boxoffice is an item in the December 29, 1956, issue saying that the owner, T.E. Smith, had closed the theater.

A theater was opened in Marmaduke in 1938 by Tom Ford, but the September 24 issue of Boxoffice that year said that the new house, set to open the following Friday, was to be named the Marmaduke. I can’t find the name Marmaduke Theatre in any later issues of Boxoffice, but then the earliest mention of the Dixie I’ve found is from 1947. Most likely the Marmaduke and the Dixie were the same house in any case.
